Posted By on 9th December 2016

Planners have finally approved the construction of 800 new homes and two shopping centres on farmland on the outskirts of Newquay.

The 71-acre Chapel Gover scheme was backed by 15 votes to 2, with no abstentions, when Cornwall Council’s Strategic Planning Committee considered the outline application yesterday (Thursday.)

The shopping centres are to include shops, restaurants, hot food takeaway businesses together with health, education and other public services. Local councillors have been debating the proposal for nearly two years.
